The 70th anniversary of D-Day was the perfect occasion to celebrate the spirit of freedom and gratitude that has cemented the solid friendship between France and the United States. The musical stylings of Doc Scantlin with Chou Chou and the Palmettos, as well as costumed WWII reenactors, made for a true 1940’s feel throughout the night.
Chou Chou interacted with the crowd, guests took pictures on a 1940’s US Army Jeep, and a live DJ played music to end the night with a bang!
The wide selection of the area’s finest restaurants, hotels, and pastry shops at the event provided for a delicious and varied assortment of foods while multiple bars added to the fun where guests could enjoy numerous drinks.
The Online and Silent Auctions were a big success with guests bidding on items such as French language classes, exotic vacations, and a dinner cruise. Finally an end-of-evening raffle was awaited throughout the night, where one guest won a trip to Paris for two, courtesy of Air France!
